The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Open Data Program is run by AWS and focuses on publicly available high-value cloud-optimized datasets.
Alongside traditional data distribution channels, GeoNet now also publishes it's archive via the AWS Open Data access mechanism.
This is a fast and reliable way of getting large amounts of data, to perform bulk downloads, and for users to develop cloud-native techniques and reduce the cost and overhead of transferring large volumes of data from the GeoNet archive to their premises.
Data is made available on an Amazon Simple Storage Service (or Amazon S3 bucket) named
The following datasets are currently available on the Registry of Open Data on AWS
We will continue to add further data sets to the collection.
You can find more information on what data sets we have available, and how to access them via our tutorials on GitHub.
